Shooting Suspect Aims Gun at Officers NR11426cj

Los Angeles:  An officer-involved shooting occurred after a man armed with a handgun pointed his weapon at LAPD officers.

On September 8, 2011 at around 7 p.m., Rampart Gang Enforcement Detail (GED) officers were on patrol in the area of Madison Avenue and Monroe Street when they saw a man standing near the northwest corner firing a handgun at a passing car.  The officers stopped their car and ordered the suspect to drop his weapon.  When the suspect pointed his gun at the officers one of the officers became involved in an officer involved shooting (OIS).

The suspect was struck by gun fire, fell to the ground and taken into custody.  Officers immediately called for medical assistance.  LAFD rescue personnel responded to the scene and transported the suspect to a local hospital where he is in serious condition.  

No officers were injured as a result of this incident.  The suspect’s weapon was recovered at the scene by detectives.

Force Investigation Division (FID) personnel responded and are investigating the OIS.  FID CAT is investigating the crime committed against the officers.  The investigation is ongoing.
 
The investigation will ultimately be reviewed by the Chief of Police, the Office of the Inspector General and Board of Police Commissioners for compliance with the Department’s use-of-force policy which states that an officer’s use-of-force actions must be objectively reasonable.  Additionally, the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Justice System Integrity Division will conduct a comprehensive review of the facts of the officer-involved shooting.

Anyone with information about this incident is urged to call Rampart Area Detectives at 213-484-3440.  During non-business hours or on weekends, calls should be directed to 1-877-LAPD-24-7 (877-527-3247).  Anyone wishing to remain anonymous should call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-TIPS (800-222-8477). Tipsters may also contact Crime Stoppers by texting to phone number 274637 (C-R-I-M-E-S on most keypads) with a cell phone.  All text messages should begin with the letters “LAPD.”  Tipsters may also go to LAPDOnline.org, click on "webtips" and follow the prompts.
